    What I use:
    *Reason 3.0 (Do everything in there like create melodies and drums)
    *Adobe Audition 2 w/Diamond Waves plugin (mix and master in here)

    Some of my TIPS:
    -If you use FL, delete all the preset BS that come with it and download or BUY some sounds and drums.
    -If you use the piano roll, do not have your melodies quantized-its good to have it a lil off- when i say lil a mean like milliseconds (ms)--this helps take that computer generated sound away.
    -EQ sounds to clear them up
    -Layer your sounds to make them thicker....

    Well those are my tips for now i'll come back later to leave more when they come to me.

    oh yeah to ^^ you can easily get that hi pitched sampled voice just take your sample and cut the pieces you want to use load it in Acid, SoundForge, or Recycle which ever one you have.... all work fine and just cut a loop and raise the tempo from the original

    You can also use a program called Cool Edit Pro. Just download some accapella, cut the part you want out, and raise the pitch and/or speed.

    I use Fruity Loops but I have the Evolution mk449c keyboard because i find it easier to make melodies on the keyboard coz i can try things out, develop it easier etc etc, it also has handy faders and knobs which u can assign to the fruity loops mixer and vsts which can make life easier whilst in the mixing stage

    yeah i'm purely software. i have Reason 3.0, FL Studio 6, Cubase SX.
    To be honest all i use at the moment is Reason. I think its the most beneficial to use as you get a sort of beginners guide to using hardware anyway with the interfaces, and i'm learning stuff that will become valuable in the studio. Not saying the others dont have that element coz i havent used them enough in depth, but Reason is my shit for now..

    i think im one of the only guys with equipment so i'll throw some info in here.

    i have a Korg X5 midi keyboard and Roland Fantom XR rack module.

    the sounds off the roland are some of the most incredible i've ever heard and i have like 400mb soundfonts for midi. not even close to the roland.

    its much easier though to just play a chord and have it run through midi to record the notes i pressed. then i set the tempo and it plays it back for me. i can also change the note length and add rests where ever i want with the computer keyboard.

    its all run straight to the computer though. so there's no floppys or anything.

    and i use acid to put everything together. most of the time i use acid for the drums too cause i have a shit load of drum sample kits.

    i used to just use software, and i love hardware. much easier and WAY better sound quality.

    heres my 2 cents .......

    i use acid 5.0 or 6.0, fl6 & keyboards ......

    acid to arrange, fl6 to mess wit the pitch (for some reason the pitch jus sounds better in fl6)

    acid 6.0 has vst's ....... so i can layer with instruments over samples ..... my keyboard is just used for bass & sometimes strings !!!

    i find it easier to chop in acid ..... its waveforms compared to fl6's chopper where u play the chop with midi .....

    just my preference !!!

    holla at me

    It doesnt matter what you use. Its all quality gear. Just get the right plugins with your software. But as far as sequencers go. You're better off doing your tracks in Cubase. Its probally has the best sequencing out there IMO. With that said I use FL6 also because of the convience of chopping my samples, getting to my drums quicker, and its idea simplicity.

    The one downside of FL6 is i dont ever recommend it to producers just starting out. it has a tendency to lie to you about the quality of your work if you're just starting out. i've had so many people play their FL tracks for me and they think its just amazing while i'm just waiting for it to be done so i can move on.

    As far as hardware goes, i have an roland xp60 and a Korg electribe drum sampler at home. when i go to the studio i have the extra options of a novation keyboard, asr-10, and a triton. I've never felt the need for an MPC though. My FLStudio is my MPC to me.

    you just play it faster wtf...

    & u don't chipmunk the voices for the hell of it, you do it to match the temp you want to work with.

    if the original sample is about 90 BPM then you should sample it straight, if it's like 65 bpm, then you should probably speed it up.

    I think the only hardware that's absolutely necessary is turntables, & maybe a MIDI device if you work with synths.
